Christmas Tree Lighting 2010

BVU's Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

November 21, 2011

For the 6th year, BVU will herald in the Christmas season by sponsoring the Community Tree-Lighting at Cumberland Square in downtown Bristol Virginia. Set for Monday, November 28, at 6:30p.m., the event showcases a stately 45-foot Norwegian Spruce, which BVU technicians decorate with thousands of lights — about 18,000 of them — for a dramatic and joyous ceremonial display. Cider and hot chocolate will be provided, and Christmas music will be performed by the Virginia High Bearcat Marching Band and local school choirs. Please join us to ring in the 2011 Christmas season on Monday, November 28, at 6:30 p.m. at Cumberland Square. (Rain date: Tuesday, November 29, at 6:30 p.m.)
